We are located on a forested 90-acre campus adjacent to a national forest, minutes away from access to world-class hiking, rock climbing, and mountain biking. Our diverse selection of elective classes also includes subjects ranging from arts & crafts to robotics, CSI, blacksmithing, Dungeons and Dragons, and beyond.
